Facelift and Neck Lift
Face and neck lifting slows the signs of aging on the face by reversing the effects of gravity. These procedures remove excess fat, tighten underlying muscles, and re-drape the skin of your face and neck. While a facelift can significantly improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, creases, and other signs of age along the face, neck lift surgery addresses excess loose skin (commonly referred to as “turkey neck”) and smooths out the remainder for a more youthful, firmer appearance.
A facelift and/or neck lift can be done alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic facial procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery or laser surgery for wrinkles.
